Two Teens Arrested In Garden City Fires

Garden City police have made some headway in finding out who was behind a string of suspicious fires.

Last month, officers and firefighters responded to five suspicious fires on the city’s east side. Four of them involved vacant homes and the fifth was an abandoned shed.

Working off tips from the public, police have arrested two teenagers in connection to the four mobile home fires. Both are being held in the Southwest Kansas Regional Juvenile Detention Center.

"This appears to be a situation where the kids were bored, they didn’t really have anything else going on and they took the available matter and lighted the homes on fire,” said Sgt. Michael Reagle with the Garden City Police Department.

NO arrests have been made involving the fire at the abandoned shed in the 3600 block of Westport Ave
